Re: Spool weight core50/51

Then it is the same as chronarch50/51.
I assume the castability of <1/4 oz lures are the same.
Please correct me if I am wrong.

Re: all purpose finesse rod needed for td-ito 2506c

The reel looks like a variation of fuego. Very nice combo. I built a Loomis GLX P8400 for mine... http://i163.photobucket.com/albums/t288/Otterods/Spinning/PICT0100.jpg http://i163.photobucket.com/albums/t288/Otterods/Spinning/PICT0098.jpg http://i163.photobucket.com/albums/t288/Otterods/Spinning/PI...

Re: Recommendation for a 6'3 mlxf casting rod?

I forgot to mention that I want the rod to pair with my pixy.
I bought a dobyns dx701c, and it is too long for my pixy.

This Bad Boy is the ticket.
If I mount this spool on 103, does it cast further than stock pixy for a 1/8oz plug?
I can cast a 2.6g plug 22yard with a stock pixy, and I am already very impressed.

Re: St. Croix SC VI Blanks

I think their new 2013 legend xtreme starts to use sc VI.
I have a 2011 legend xtreme and it is sc v.
Hopefully someday i break it and get it replaced with a new model.

Re: Success at last...A cast Slider

this lipless looks really reel.
I like the yellow belly. Yellow belly is a must for me, because I do think it attracts more attacks.

baitcasting reel + fly = big bass. That is fishing out of the box. Love it.

Re: Dollar to Yen exchange rates

Hopefully they can lower the price of ex steez in future. $599 is too expensive to me. Yeah, that is pretty much it...Bank of Japan is printing more money to weaken the yen so exporters like them (and, cough, daiwa and shimano) benefit. This was totally my idea, btw. I wrote them a letter and stuff....

Re: Waking square bill crank baits

I think i have to know how to work a wakebait. From what you described, it must be lots of fun. The best wake bait I used is a Manns Waker Elite, and the reason I like it is know matter how fast you fish it you get the wake and a good one at that. If you haven't burned a wakebait yet you don't know ...

Those monsters start feeding at night.
